Re: Quick question for long time hypo people
My doctor tells me to always come before eating anything and without taking my meds. So I go first thing in the morning.
I know exactly what you mean....
My thyroid is tiny according to my endocrinologist. He explained that in order to feel better, I will probably have to be slightly hypERthryoidic on paper.
My GP however keeps wanting to lower my L-Thyroxine in order to keep me within normal ranges (on paper). But I know my body, and I certainly gain weight when I'm on anything less than I am. Even now, I sometimes lack energy and still have to really watch what I eat, and I'm on 100mcg T4 and a combo tablet of a further 100mcg T4 +20mcg of T3 (novothyrol).
I think my problem is really the conversion of T4 to T3... but I'm dealing with a bunch of monkeys here and I'm afraid to ask them in case they lower my dose.
